Rush Limbaugh On Chris Matthews And Al Sharpton: ‘A Bunch Of Parasites’

Rush Limbaugh enjoyed the fact that he was getting under the skin of many media commentators, particularly Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton. Rush argued that for “many on the left, Obama would have been a stunning, overwhelming, resounding success if it weren’t for me” and the fact that MSNBC hosts can’t stop talking about Rush is evidence to him that he’s reached a “new level of effectiveness.”

Regarding Matthews, Rush stated “I don’t know if he’s lost his mind,” since Matthews claimed Rush wants to “rollback Harry Truman’s integration of the U.S. Army.” Only problem is that Rush apparently never made that statement. Rush predicts Matthews is simply looking for attention like fellow MSNBC host Sharpton who said he purposely set bait for Rush in order to reach Rush’s audience. Rush couldn’t stop laughing at Sharpton’s statement, responding:

“He wants to preach to my choir, well who wouldn’t want this audience? The problem is none of them has the ability to go out and get it on their own, they haven’t the slightest idea how. They’re all a bunch of parasites, every one of them.”

Potentially even more damaging was Rush’s assertion that liberals in America are so confused about what to say or do because “they realize it’s their policies that have done all of this” to our economy. Rush chuckled that Obama supporters are now asking themselves, “is my kid’s future worth supporting this guy” and he concluded:

“Chris Matthews and the media, they are very close to the rioters in London in terms of anger, disappointment – this is not how it was supposed to be. We were supposed to have utopia. This was a new kind of politician. And the politics of old was supposed to vanish.”

In the end though, Rush couldn’t resist one final parting shot that “MSNBC not seeking help for the troubled Chris Matthews – that’s about as low as they can get.”
